Don’t settle for anything … EVER

Hi all.

This is going to be a very, very short post today, but I felt I needed to impart some wisdom to all of you.

NEVER, EVER settle for anything.  If your gut and heart is screaming at you, telling you NOT to do something – LISTEN.  The last thing you want is to wake up one day regretting the decision you made.

There is a reason you have a sixth sense warning you, telling you not to do something. Too many times we balk at it. We think we know better. Our heads rationalize it. We have people who mean well telling us it’s a great thing to do. But I’m telling you. If your gut tugs at you and tells you ‘No’, listen, and listen hard.

Take it from someone who recently made a very huge mistake. I wanted something so bad that I rationalized it even though I knew in my heart it wasn’t the right path for me. As soon as I did it, my gut crumpled. It knotted and twisted. I’d just broken my own heart, my own dreams, because I I rationalized it. I talked myself into it, I listened to everyone else and not the little voice that said, “Don’t do it, Jenny.”

Please, take it from me, don’t wind up feeling like this. Listen to that little voice. You’ll be happier for it.

As for me… I’ve made my choice and now I must live with it. I will turn it around and I will make it a good decision, a good choice, one that will have a positive outcome. Good things come to those who keep positive vibes around them so come on world!  Bring on the good, happy vibes. It’s up to me to climb up and out. What an adventure it will be. 🙂

    1. aww, you’re sweet!! 🙂 You’ve got great things happening for you right now. Funny. When we met all those years ago, we used to dream about where you are right now. Life is wonderful, isn’t it?

    1. Yes, we’ve all done things that maybe we shouldn’t have done. All I can hope is that God led me down this path for a reason. I hope so, anyway. 🙂 And if He did, then that means nothing but good stuff down the road.


  1. Good advice that I completely agree with. And I have to add that this also goes the other way. Don’t let your head talk your heart out of something you know is right, something you know in your gut is right. Fear likes to lie to us. Trust yourself. 🙂

    1. Everything is great. Making the best of what I have. I mean, it’s not all bad. There are many things I didn’t ‘settle’ for so I have much to be thankful for. I’m thankful for this new little journey I’m on, even though my stomach turns when I think about what I’ve gotten into. However, now that I’ve made this choice, it is up to me how I let it affect me. I choose to be positive. It’s going to be good. Right? 🙂


  2. I’m reading this as a warning to continue on my traditional publishing path, allow time for the right agent to read my novel manuscript and place me with a large publisher.
    I’m sorry you’re experiencing so many doubts and let downs. I pray it works out better than you’re imagining.
